Bottle to pint glass. Nice amber color. Good malty scent. Good stuff; caramel and malty sweetness. One of the better U.S. Oktoberfest attempts. Reminds me of the Ayinger-style Marzen.

Deep Amber, with a thin white head, this is a vey approachable and delicious marzen. Brilliant malt aroma and a lot of lightly toasted, greasy flavors. Nice balanced, if not just a little too hoppy for the style. Medium to full in body, and very enjoyable.

Not just because I am from KC but the fact is Bob's 47 is simply the best Oktoberfest beer I have ever had, in my humble opinion. No two ways about it.!! Forget about it!!
